the hell of the north

And another thing I love about Wonder Woman is that it gently introdces some familiar tropes and the quickly shuts them dowm in favor of sincere and meaningful characterisation. 

The four male supports are the prime examples:

1. First, you have Steve, the Het White Male and you’re thinking oh I bet he’s a dick, lets get ready for some mild seualisation if not actual sexism. But?? Steve Trevor is a Pure and Good Man who supports and respects Diana and is actualy relationship goals????

2. Then, you have Sameer, and at first you think, oh hell the North African Con Man trope, but it turns out he’s a talented linguist who dreams of being an actor. Beautiful

3. Next you have Charlie, the Alcoholic Scotsman. But it turns out he drinks because he is facing some pretty serious mental health issues, and all his friends support his recovery and care for his emotional wellbeing !!!

4. And then you have Chief, and you’re surprised becasue first of all this is a Native American Character played by a Native American. And then!! He isn’t the Medicine Man, or the Spiritual Guide but a man who had everything taken from him by white people and is just trying to make something for himself. Fucking pUre.

what your soul has forgotten
  • North Node Aries/South Node Libra: you're so used to being there for others, giving of yourself in relationships to the point of losing yourself, that you've forgotten what it means to be an individual, to stand alone and to be your own person, to be assertive.
  • North Node Taurus/South Node Scorpio: you're so used to having control, being controlled and needing power that you've forgotten what it means to relax and to just be comfortable without needing control over everything.
  • North Node Gemini/South Node Sagittarius: you're so used to being anywhere but here and going off on adventures, you've forgotten what it means to actually talk and get to know the people right in front of you, in your neighbourhood.
  • North Node Cancer/South Node Capricorn: you're so used to being a workhorse and striving for success and to just be successful, you've forgotten what it means to stay at home and actually feel a part of something.
  • North Node Leo/South Node Aquarius: you're so used to being there for everyone else and for the group, you've forgotten what it means to be an individual and to actually shine as one too.
  • North Node Virgo/South Node Pisces: you're so used to chaos and escaping from reality, you've forgotten what it means to be a real, grounded, physical human being.
  • North Node Libra/South Node Aries: you're so used to having to do everything alone and be there for number one, you, that you've forgotten what it means to be there for someone else.
  • North Node Scorpio/South Node Taurus: you're so used to being comfortable and relaxed, you've forgotten what it means to actually be there for someone when they're going through hell.
  • North Node Sagittarius/South Node Gemini: you're so used to getting all the gossip and talking endlessly about nothing, you've forgotten what it means to actually know and talk about something that has real meaning.
  • North Node Capricorn/South Node Cancer: you're so used to being there for your family, the people you grew up with, and people being there for you, you've forgotten what it means to actually be someone in the world, to make a success of yourself on your own.
  • North Node Aquarius/South Node Leo: you're so used to being treated like royalty, having so much happiness and joy and readiness to take the world by storm, you've forgotten what it means to not be selfish, to be there for those who have nothing, to relate to people you don't know.
  • North Node Pisces/South Node Virgo: you're so used to being the one who works hard and does all the duties and being realistic, you've forgotten what it's like to dream and actually allow yourself to follow a dream.

“You could at least recognize me.”
“Girl, you know ion remember shit.”

Anime North 2017, Day 2: 
Me (Bucky Barnes / The Winter Soldier) and @thesteppinrazor (Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow.) 


20. colourless

“We’re sitting with Adrien Dupain-Cheng, author of Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Chat Noir. M. Dupain-Cheng, please tell us what made you write this memoir and reveal the decades-long secret you and your late wife shared?”

The old man smiled at the reporter across from him and folded his wrinkled hands on his lap.

“After Marinette passed away last year, it felt like my world had lost all colour,” said Adrien. “Until I read the diaries she willed to me…well. After that, I wanted to reconstruct our story and tell it to everyone. I want to keep Marinette’s legacy alive.”

puppetmaster55  asked:

Jack Frost & Danny Phantom, "Well one of us is gonna have to change."

If North had known the catch–that when Jack asked, “Can I invite a friend to the party?” he’d meant, “Can I invite a human to the party?”–he probably would’ve said No.

“What are you talking about?” Jack laughed, face scrunching up in amusement, crossing his arms. He looked a bit out of place without his staff (it was a masquerade party, and he’d come dressed in the black and white garb of a popular American superhero named Phantom), but Jack’s eyes still shone with the familiar glint of a trickster. “Danny’s not human. Not entirely.” 

“Ah, but there is the issue, my friend. Part human is still human.” North explained, casting a wary glance across the room. The boy in question chatted animatedly with Tooth, Bunny, Coatlquetzal, and the Groundhog. Danny himself had a blue hoodie, brown pants, and a certain crooked staff in his hands. North tried to shake off the uncanny resemblance; if Danny only had a white wig, he’d be identical to Jack Frost.

Danny wasn’t having any trouble seeing the guests, though, despite being well past the age of most believers. North wasn’t sure if the boy was a medium or had nonhuman heritage, but it didn’t matter. It was still dangerous.

“There are many spirits here who would take advantage of a human,” North pointed out. “Not at my party, perhaps. But after.”

“Danny? No. he can take care of himself.” Jack said.

North raised a skeptical eyebrow, so Jack called over, “Hey Danny! Come meet Santa.”

From across the room, Danny and Jack shared a knowing glance, and briefly North wondered what was going on between the two. He didn’t have much time to ponder it, though, as the teen tactfully broke away from his conversation and ambled over with a smile.

Danny offered a hand to shake. “Nice to meet you, North, Jack’s told me a lot about you. And… my dad’s a big fan,” he admitted sheepishly.

North shook the offered hand, casting a confused glance to Jack, who just grinned, eyes sparkling. “So North seems to think,” Jack started out before North could get a word in edgewise, “That you’re human.”

A pause, and instantly, Danny grinned too. “I knew that whole ‘watching you 24 hours a day’ thing was BS.” He turned to North, eyes dancing with such amusement that North irrationally wondered if he was Jack’s twin. “Are you asking for a demonstration, then?”

North blinked. “Demonstration?”

Grinning, Jack stole his staff, and Danny stepped back, hands clenched at his side.

And then a white ring appeared around the teenager’s waist.

Heads turned as the bright flash grew, parting over Danny’s form to completely change his appearance. The hoodie and pants transformed into black and white hazmat; Danny’s black hair inverted to white. In an instant, the human was gone, replaced by Phantom, ghost superhero of legend.

North’s jaw dropped. Jack, behind him, laughed.

“See? What did I tell you? That was priceless!” Jack sauntered over to lean an elbow on Danny’s shoulder. North blinked. Now Jack and his guest were both wearing the same outfit, and except for the height difference and one’s green glowing eyes, the two looked identical.

Danny poked Jack in the chest. “Yeah, but now one of us is gonna have to change.”

“Bloody hell,” whispered Bunny from somewhere behind North, echoing his thoughts. “I can barely handle one Jack Frost–what’re we gonna do with two?”

Microfics to break my writer’s block. :)
